RETAIL : More people use mobile devices to buy groceries than any other retail category

Grocery companies should consider prioritizing their mobile offerings as they shape their omni-channel strategies.  Food shoppers buy products differently than apparel or hard goods shoppers.  A robust mobile channel will be required to be competitive for most food retailers.

 Post based on Original Article Source. When it comes to buying stuff online, most people still prefer PCs. But mobile is becoming an increasingly important sales channel for one particular retail industry above all others: Groceries.

Based on data from PriceWaterhouse Coopers charted for us by BI Intelligence, 37% of all grocery e-commerce sales in October came from purchases on a mobile device like a phone or tablet. Other retail industries, like furniture and health, are not too far behind, but BI Intelligence predicts sales of online groceries will grow at a much faster rate than sales at traditional supermarkets. Considering how the US grocery industry accounts for roughly $600 billion a year in sales, BI Intelligenceforecasts the online grocery market will grow about 21% each year for the next three years. After all, the food and beverage industry is the largest retail industry by far, and online services that can get food into your home — whether it’s fresh from the store or already prepared by a restaurant — are in high demand: Companies from GrubHub to Amazon and Uber are already launching campaigns to get in on the action.

Retailers want their shoppers to have the same experience whether on the phone, on the computer or in the store.

One inventory, one unified customer service experience, one checkout. It can mean pick-up in store, ship from store, click and collect, order in-store or a number of other options that make it painless to get what you want, wherever you are, when you want it.

This is what retailers mean when they talk about “omnichannel,” and it’s at the top of their priority lists this year, according to the National Retail Federation. The topic took center stage at the eTail West Conference in Palm Desert on Wednesday. The conference, hosted by Worldwide Business Research, runs through Friday.

“What’s going to happen over the next five years is a merging of online and offline into a single retail organization,” said Forrester VP and Principal Analyst Peter Sheldon, during a keynote presentation at the J.W. Marriott.

To be successful with such a transformation, Sheldon said, retailers will have to stop thinking about their digital and in-store customers as different people, and their online and physical store sales as separate. Because they’re not, he said. A Forrester study found that half of sales that take place in physical stores were influenced by […]
